Record Store Day reveals 2018 limited edition turntable


To celebrate Record Store Day 2018, we are extremely proud to bring you our exclusive new limited-edition turntable with long-term partners Rega Research. 

The new design will be available to buy from participating record stores and independent hi-fi retailers from Record Store Day on the 21st April and will retail at £265. 

Built around the stunning high gloss acrylic skin plinth from the award winning Rega Planar 2, this year’s turntable delivers a serious punch. 

Featuring a high performance low noise 24v high spec motor driving a precision main bearing and unique white platter, topped with a Rega / Record Store Day themed mat.

You will also find the award-winning hand-built RB110 tonearm (factory fitted with a Rega Carbon cartridge) designed to deliver exceptional performance whilst remaining one of the simplest turntables to set-up on the market. 

All of these quality engineered components are designed to extract as much information from the vinyl surface as possible and guarantee to give your record collection a new lease of life. 

Simon Webster of Rega Research said “This years limited edition Record Store Day turntable is a unique hybrid of two of Rega’s most popular multi-award winning Planar turntables. 

Taking full advantage of our latest design technology, the turntable also includes a custom design mat and exclusive white platter offering premium looks and truly exceptional performance in a simple to use package.We are extremely excited to see this new turntable rolling out for Record Store Day UK 2018 - a turntable designed to bring the best out of those fantastic new releases.”
